West Missouri chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians (UBE)

The Rev. Rita Kendagor One-minute read.   Resources

It is time to begin the process of starting a UBE chapter here in our diocese

Earlier this year, at the Absalom Jones Celebration, there was a video address from the President of the Union of Black Episcopalians (UBE), the Rev Kim L. Coleman. She highlighted the history and current mission of the UBE. She also spoke about the various ways in which the UBE supports and encourages Black Episcopalians all over the world.

The need for a UBE chapter in West Missouri has been discussed by various people off and on, and Bishop Bruce has strongly urged that this become a reality. Many who were at the Absalom Jones celebration went online with their smartphones and joined the UBE immediately. And others have since joined those ranks.

The UBE is for anyone who is interested in supporting and furthering the involvement and growth of Black Episcopalians. The mission of the UBE points out its commitment to diversity. It states:

To unite the diverse cultures, concerns, and gifts of Black Episcopalians by providing preparation and encouragement for living the Baptismal Covenant and fully participating in the mission and governance of the Episcopal Church.

If you have joined UBE through the online portal, please contact me. I believe we have more than enough people to establish a chapter, but to do so we need to identify all who have joined.
